Sydney Vapour Blasting - Australia

Vertical Tabs

Sydney Vapour Blasting
Aquablast 1215
Case study overview

Sydney Vapour Blasting, based in Australia, restore and recondition Automotive, Motorcycle, Marine, Aeronautical and other industrial components to the highest standard. Sydney Vapor Blasting are owned by Paradise Garage, also based in Australia, who service and provide maintenance for prestigious and classic cars.


As the supply of classic and vintage automotive parts continues to shrink, preserving these components is becoming increasingly important. The Aquablast allows Sydney Vapour Blasting to bring aged components back to life, maintaining their quality, and restoring their functionality. While a lot of the work they carry out comes from in house, they have also marketed their vapour blasting service to the public which has opened a door for further business opportunities.  


Sydney Vapour Blasting purchased the Aquablast 1215, which is the medium sized model within Vixen standard wetblasting range of machines. Vixen’s Aquablast machines simultaneously blast and degrease a range of equipment using different types of media and abrasives to produce a variety of finishes, leaving the part looking brand new and cleaned thoroughly.


Here is what Angus Lukes had to say about Vixen:


“Vixen Surface Treatments were more than helpful when it came to assisting us in choosing the right machine. We were offered a factory tour and an equipment demonstration by the Managing Director of the company himself. This allowed a fast and smooth purchase decision process. The transport arrangements were also extremely smooth. The after sales service has been really great so far!”
